Robo-FTP instances hang when run non-interactively as service or from a scheduler (Robo-FTP 3.9 and earlier)

If Robo-FTP is running non-interactively, such as when it is running as a service or has been launched by a scheduler, and attempts to display a dialog which requires user interaction, then it will appear as though that instance of Robo-FTP has simply hung.

The solution is to use the -v option on the command line you are using to launch Robo-FTP. For example:

Robo-FTP.exe -v -s "C:\path\to\my\script.s"

The -v option tells Robo-FTP to suppress any user interface elements like pop-ups.

Note that this option is not required for Robo-FTP 3.10 or later. In later versions, Robo-FTP automatically detects that it is being run non-interactively and suppresses dialog boxes from being displayed.
